Episode 31: Australia

We decided to take on an entire continent this week on Peripheral. It was no small feat considering that Australia is full of nightmares. Don’t believe us?

NIGHTMARE ISLAND CHECKLIST:

CHECKCHECK Sad history of aboriginal genocide and baby stealing.

CHECKCHECK Once boasted the highest number of insane asylums per capita.

CHECKCHECK Home to countless murderous mammals, reptiles, insects and marine life.

CHECKCHECK Has one of the lowest population densities on earth.

Australia is a landmass boiling over with haints. We try to tackle just a few of them.

Enjoy!

Episode 30: Space Oddities

In this episode of Peripheral we dug up our favorite stories about the mysteries of space and serve them hot and ready to your ears.

We will sort of answer questions similar in tone to the ones postulated below:

Did fuzzy aliens send zeppelins down to earth for the purpose of abducting humans?

Have mysterious satellites been circling earth for hundreds of years?

Do astronauts see aliens while out spacewalking?

Is space a vacuum of evils that should be avoided by man?

Oh boy, we are going to kind of get into those topics and mostly blow your minds! Enjoy!

Space Oddities

I mean, he is odd. And he is in space.

Episode 28: Urban Legends

The best part of an urban legend is that it doesn’t matter how ridiculous it is, it still gets under your skin.  Does it make logical sense that saying a phrase three times into a mirror would conjure a ghost child?  Of course it doesn’t.  Will you wake up in a bathtub full of ice with your kidneys missing?  They wouldn’t leave you alive!  It there actually something under your bed?  Nope.  It’s moved behind you.

This episode we discuss the the dos and don’ts of self medication, the true dangers of indoor fans and we look at the birth of a modern urban legend about vampires.  We also have a public service announcement: please put away your Halloween decorations in a timely fashion.  So many of them are actual corpses.  Also, please put away your corpses.

Enjoy the episode!  But first, maybe check the  backseat of your car…

Episode 27: Paranormal Attacks

No one likes being hassled.  Unwanted touch or conversation can be annoying at best (a co-worker sharing an update of their hysterectomy scars while you wash your mug in the breakroom), or downright nightmarish (realizing the dude sitting behind you on the bus has been blowing air gently onto the back of your neck for the last fifteen minutes).  It seems impossible, but ghosts and cryptids have even less respect for your personal space than bus creepers.

This week we share a variety of stories about unwanted paranormal touch, tales of ghosts, demons and boy scouts getting all up in your biz.

We hope you enjoy it and we hope it inspires you to set clear inter-dimensional boundaries.

Baby Puncher

Damn ghost babies all up in your bubble.

Episode 25: Destination Hunter Facts

Paranormal reality shows are the perfect trash television.  Nothing soothes a hangover better than watching dum dums in night vision, screaming and running from “ghosts.”

The issue with our favorite ghost hunting shows is how prolific they are.  Ghost Hunters has filmed over 200 episodes and has at least three spin off shows.  Ghost Adventures has had 23 seasons and Destination Truth, despite not being very popular, still had 5 seasons.

You can trust us on this: the majority of these episodes are bad.  Easily 75%-85% are real wet farts.

We have handpicked the best and scariest episodes from these shows to curate a ghost show mixtape for you.  This mixtape includes the following hot tracks:

  1. Puppet Surgery f/ Commander Riker
  2. Haunted Forest vs Meadow f/ Romanian Gallagher
  3. Where R We Headed, Grandson?  f/Yokai Memaw
  4. Spider Demon (Dude Get It Off) f/ ‘Roid Boyz

We hope you enjoy it!
